SR> i agree that its an interesting subject...

all users working as editor agree and wish (since... a long time)
to be able to include articles in a report (or journal), reports
in a book, ... without any modification. It looks like the Multi Master
Fonts... we need a mechanism for our personnal cooking. So, may be,
the document hierarchy should not exactly be seen as suggested but
preferably like this:

\usepackage[WithToc,WithoutIndex,% some global options of interest

     \documentclass{article}     % Start of article 1 class
       %% Article 1 stuff
     \end{document}              % End of article 1 class

This scheme suggests that there is not a lot of stuff to include in
the LaTeX kernel and that, probably, the most important part of
the job could be done inside a [standard] package.
